The current Hershey Recreation Center has served our community well since 1963. Now, it’s time for us to build a new center to meet the needs of our residents for future decades to come.

Plans are underway for the new Hershey Community Center, which will provide additional recreational and social opportunities. The new center, which will open in the spring of 2020, will give residents of all ages more room to swim, participate in classes, hold community meetings and enjoy socializing together.

Derry Township Supervisors considered five options with various pool offerings ranging from a cost between $28,820,000 and $36,737,250 for the new Community Center after hearing presentations from the architects, construction manager, programming consultant, and finance team. The four Board members in attendance voted unanimously on Option A, which includes a 35-meter competition pool, a leisure pool, gym, 13k sf fitness space, a senior center, and multi-purpose room.

The project is expected to be bid in October, 2019.
